The Discovery Club

The Discovery Club is a special group of visionary supporters who help us to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

Our high-level giving club provides its members with personal access to the science behind our discoveries. Through special events and updates, it is an opportunity to speak directly with the people who are working towards better outcomes for cancer patients and learn more about key areas of the ICR’s work.

Each year your support is directed to our designated priorities linked to our research strategy.

We invite you to join us and help to make the discoveries that defeat cancer by contributing a minimum philanthropic gift of £10,000 a year. We would be delighted to welcome you to our community of donors making a real difference to cancer patients' lives.

To find out more, please contact Hannah Joyce, Deputy Director of Philanthropy.

Childhood cancer

We have already made significant advances in understanding children’s cancers, and translating this into diagnostic tests to help children access targeted treatments designed specifically for them. With your support we can make a further step-change and expand our research in treating these rare but devastating diseases.
